Nashville Predators 4, San Jose Sharks 5: Third Period Collapse | On the Forecheck
JOFA was one fire, Juuse Saros was rolling, and everything was going great. This game was in the bag, until it wasn’t. It looked like they were going to tie it back up towards the end but just ran out of time.

Just don’t steal the puck from the little kid.

I’m not really invested in any of the Nylander rumors, I just found it funny they used a photo of him eating the boards in an article about his trade worthiness.

Mats Sundin not surprised Leafs asking stars to take less money | CBC Sports
Spend a few years collecting number one draft picks, try to convince them to sign lowball contracts, and then wonder why they leave. Seems like a vicious cycle that only ends in Toronto losing.
